Mechanical Air Cleaners
Mechanical Air Cleaners use filters to remove pollutants from air as it passes through the filter. High efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters are an example of mechanical cleaners. HEPA filters are highly effective in removing particles measured at .3 microns or larger. Because mechanical air cleaners do not rely on a power source to operate the only cost is the regular replacement of filters.
Electronic Air Cleaners
Electronic air cleaners are more complex than mechanical options, and because they are electronic there is a higher cost of operation to consider. Electronic air cleaners can operate in a few different ways. Electrostatic precipitators trap electrically charged particle by using electrostatic attraction. Air is drawn through an ionization chamber where particles are electrically charged, and they are then collected on a flat plate that is oppositely charged. Ion generators work similarly, emitting charged ions that attach to airborne particles, in turn charging the pollutants. These ionizers do not use a collect, though. The ionized particles instead attach to nearby wall or furniture.
To combat biological pollutants, consider UVGI (ultraviolet germicidal irradiation) cleaners. UV germicidal lights use ultraviolet radiation generated from UV lamps to destroy bacteria, allergens and viruses in your air or on HVAC surfaces such as the inside walls of your ductwork. These systems make a good addition to, but not replacement of, mechanical and electronic options.
